Our quilts are lovingly created by hand one square at a time.


Quilts by the Bay

My name is Debra Howard & with the help of Wally Howard have started a quilting shop and extended into this online shop. Our inspiration comes from works of art, magazines, & most importantly from walking in a store and seeing new and exciting fabrics.

Quilting and Saint Mary’s Bay have been with me throughout my entire life. We wanted to commemorate that by incorporating the pair into the name – Quilts by the Bay
